Bear skips veggies for chocolate

June 30, 2009 10:02:19 AM PDT
Deputies say a bear with an apparent sweet-tooth broke into a San Bernardino County home and gobbled up a box of chocolates from a couple's refrigerator. Sheriff's Sgt. Tom Alsky says the couple arrived home Saturday afternoon, found the bear chowing down in their kitchen and phoned for help.

The bear fled before sheriff's deputies arrived.

Alsky says the animal appeared to have pushed aside vegetables in the couple's fridge and gone straight for the two-pound box of sweets.

He says the bear also tried to open a bottle of champagne but was not successful.
